New Delhi: Press Council of India Chairperson Justice Markandey Katju supported the Uniform Civil Code.

In his engagement with people on the micro-blogging website Twitter, Katju said that the “Sharia is humbug. It is a feudal, barbaric law, hvg no place in the modern world. It deserves to be abolished. All modern countries have UCC.”

In another tweet, he said “Much of the Muslim personal law is totally outdated and inhuman, but it is not allowed to be changed due to vote bank politics.”
